Activision: Skylanders Swap Force Trailer

Skylanders pulls a Walken.

Published on

Editor's Pick

72andSunny debuts a trailer for the latest addition to Actvision's mega-hit children's franchise Skylanders, Swap Force. For those not familiar with the game's "Toys to Life" premise, it combines the fun of action figures with videogames. Players plug individual characters into a portal connected to their consoles to activate them within the game.

The latest Swap Force title introduces a new set of creatures, whose tops and bottoms are interchangeable, adding a whole new dimension to play. While the film, directed by Jens Gelhaar of Logan, may look like a typical kid's commercial, notice that it pays homage to a famous Fat Boy Slim music video from back in the day for Fat Boy Slim, directed by Spike Jonze and starring Christopher Walken.
